Please Let Us Become Children Who Are Able To Say We Will Go Forward For Your Sake Alone

We have determined to be loyal in relation to the remaining path of restoration. We have come to know that your road was so miserable and so sorrowful as you sought the result of goodness which no one knows about.
Please allow us to become children who when we relate to you are able to call you our father, and who have become sons and daughters who are confident that we have the dignified appearance of sons and the dignified appearance of daughters, and that we are able to call out your name. Until now in the course of history so many people have called your name, Father. But there were many people calling you from a position lower than that of stepchildren. Please allow at least us to be able to call you, Father, with a destined relationship of heart which penetrates to the bones. Please allow us to realize clearly that we have become holy Unification Church members who are able to serve you centered on one family and who are able to respond directly to you when you say, "Oh yes, my son, my daughter," relating to us as those who have the destined relationship of your children.
We earnestly hope and desire that you will allow us to become your children who know how to make an effort and will go forward for you alone while acknowledging of our own volition that we are beings who will disappear for the sake of your purpose because we are beings who were born for you, and we are existing for you having penetrated deep into that heart no one knows.
The Unification children are gathered in this place, but this is absolutely not a place where we have gathered in order to boast about ourselves. We are by no means people who have gathered in order to boast about something about ourselves. No matter whether we are naked, and no matter how dirty or shabby the clothes we are wearing are, please let us determine before anyone else to love you more nobly with minds that seek to become one with the people, nation and world you are seeking. If we have become sons and daughters who have bowed down before you with minds like that, we earnestly hope and desire the you will allow us to clearly know that in the midst of this, we will connect to your heart and in the midst of this, your love will blossom.
In the place where that can happen, that place which no one knows about, we must become your sons and daughters who will be able to determine ourselves saying, "Father, I'm going. I must go. I will fight for you." Please allow us to acknowledge that without doing that we can not penetrate through the wall of the enemy. Furthermore, we earnestly ask that you will allow us to become chosen warriors of heaven who penetrate through the walls of the enemy and finally absolutely raise up the banner of victory together with your name.
We were not born for anyone. We were born only for you, and because we were born for you, we will live for you, and because we will live for you we will be able to die for you; therefore, we earnestly hope and desire that you will allow us to become your sons and daughters who have a solid and clear belief that we must realize a world-level victory. We have humbly prayed all these things in the holy name of the True Parents. Amen.
